On Sunday February 5, 2017, protestors gathered to oppose the Trump administration's decision to allow continued construction of the Keystone XL (Dakota Access) Pipeline, which runs through a sacred burial ground of the Standing Rock Sioux and could compromise their access to clean water via the Missouri River.

Red Fawn is an organizer and community leader of the Oglala Lakota Sioux. She was arrested following a police raid during which she was serving as a medic. She is the only remaining prisoner resulting from the raid. Police claim that she fired a weapon at them; witnesses from the camp refute this claim.
